We are a surf lodge located on the Pacific Coast in El Paredon, Guatemala
El Paredon is the only surf town in Guatemala and due to its surf consistency, we receive waves all day, everyday! Our lodge is right in front of a nice beach break and is the perfect place to relax, surf, practice yoga, explore the town, tour the mangroves on a stand up paddleboard, but most importantly: enjoy beach life and make new friends :)
Being one of the few Guatemalan owned properties on the beach, our lodge attracts a diverse mix of both travelers and Guatemalans alike. We are implementing new ideas and trying to provide a fresh and unique experience in town. The idea is to create a fun, energetic atmosphere full of excitement and unforgettable memories, while simultaneously being in harmony with nature and the culture of Guatemala. To create this atmosphere, we are looking for open-minded volunteers who will be a constant positive and valuable contribution to our operational team.
We look forward to you joining our team.
